We take you back shortly before the Cotton Bowl, when the eligibility of Arkansas running back Darren McFadden was called into question.
McFadden, a junior, reportedly was in possession of a new Cadillac Escalade that agent Mike Conley helped him purchase.
“That is 100% a lie,” Conley told KARK-TV, which aired the report.
The station eventually backed off the report and issued an apology.
Arkansas quickly conducted a thorough review of the allegations and ruled that McFadden was eligible to participate in the Cotton Bowl.
McFadden played and then announced that he would leave a year early for NFL riches.
On Monday, MMG Sports Sports Management Group announced that it would represent McFadden.
Said McFadden: "Selecting MMG Sports Management was an easy choice."
MMG, of course, is owned by Conley.
